For those of you that were present at the annual Sandbanks British Beach Polo Championship, will have noticed we were the official Merchandise and Kit sponsors of the event held on the sunny seaside of Poole.
The weekend event consisted of four teams competing for the title over the weekend Friday 13th and Saturday 14th July 2018.
As the 11th consecutive year of the tournament there was an excellent turnout, making it is the most popular beach polo event of the year.
The game was played in an enclosed area right on the sand, allowing spectators a close up view of the exhilarating sport. In comparison to the usual small white ball played in polo, these matches were played with a larger orange ball to allow it to be seen clearer by the players. Playing on the sand allows for quicker acceleration and a more rapid paced game, with sharper turns made by the horses.
Hurlingham Polo 1875 have helped design all four team kits as well as the umpires’ kit for the day and also presented the Rug for the Best Playing Pony of the event on the day. In conjunction with Sandbanks we created a small merchandise range that was available to purchase at the event along with a variety of our stock, including the new equestrian range.
If you missed out on the Equestrian Range, don’t worry our styles are still available to buy online.
The glorious combination of this thrilling sport, juxtaposed with the calm scenic backdrop of British coastline created a unique beautiful day out, both for Hurlingham Polo 1875 and the many spectators involved in the witnessing some up-close exhilarating Polo matches!
